Retirement day getting close

It is starting to get very close to my retirement date. I'm planning on turning in my paperwork to set the retirement process in motion on Monday. Turing in the paperwork should prove to be interesting. Everything is starting to feel a lot more real now and there is that feeling of uncertainty that goes along with what I'm doing. I don't think for me there will be a good time to go.
Sharon and I are getting very committed to the trip. The purchase of the airline tickets will have to be done soon. Once that's done then everything else has to drop into place. Another bit of apprehension but it will be interesting to see how everything turns out.
I'm ready.

Pa's birthday bash


We celebrated Pa's birthday on Saturday so we could all get together. It was a good day of visiting. I managed to get a couple of decent photographs. I was hoping for a much better test of the new lens. I had the ISO bumped to 1200 and the photos have a bit of aberration in the shadows.
It was a bit strange without ma being there though it was still an enjoyable time. I am hoping that we can have more of them.
